Pelosi's experience as a mom helped her deal with Trump, Schumer told CNN.
Pelosi said Trump and Schumer 'understood each other' because they're both New Yorkers.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's experience as a mother prepared her to "handle" former President Donald Trump, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
During the interview, Schumer sat down with Pelosi for a dinner of Chinese food with CNN's Jamie Gangel.
Trump, in turn, would also mock the Democratic leaders, calling them "Chuck and Nancy" or "Cryin' Chuck" and "Crazy Nancy.".
Schumer reflected on the dispute he and Pelosi had with Trump over the 2018 government shutdown, which was the longest shutdown in US history.
In the CNN interview, Schumer said he and Pelosi were able to get Trump to say that he would take ownership of the shutdown. »
